Being A Hero Isn’t For Everyone…
Norman Osborn faced Chasm in DARK WEB #1 and has to face another terrifying opponent in this issue! Norman’s only been a super hero for a few days… but his tenure might be quite short!
AIPTGreen Goblin #2 continues to show a complex side of Norman Osborn's past evil acts and how he's dealing with them. One can imagine he'll lean into it and become the man he was born to be, but you'll root for him as he fights against evil to be better.
Weird Science Marvel ComicsGold Goblin #2 puts pressure on Norman’s recovery efforts, much like an addict tempted with his elixir of choice. The character work is intriguing, and the future potential is rife with possibility. Just don’t expect much as a Dark Web tie-in, since the event is barely a factor in this issue.
ComicBook.comGold Goblin #2 marks a substantial improvement upon the series' debut as the focus shifts to Norman's perspective and motives without simply stating them repeatedly for readers. (...) Multi-faceted conversations with a wide array of ghosts prove more intriguing than a constant barrage of Gwen Stacy's brittle spine. While elements of the artwork remain rough around the edges, the approach and appeal of Gold Goblin is starting to smooth out.
Comics Nexus by Inside PulseA mixed issue story wise that picked up at the end when Queen Goblin arrived. Decent action. Decent art. An ok issue helped by Queen Goblin and that cliffhanger. 6 out of 10.
